SyQic plc (AIM:SYQ), a fast growing OTT provider of paid mobile video content across mobile and internet enabled consumer devices, is pleased to announce that it launched its new YooMob Plus enhanced telco platform service in Malaysia with Maxis Telecommunications.
With this new enhanced telco oriented platform, SyQic has the ability to reach a much broader range of handsets, including new generation smart phones and operating systems, with enhanced features such as HD video streaming, content sharing capabilities. These features improve the viewing experience and increase customer engagement and consequently the directors of SyQic anticipate that this will result in more content purchases.
The YooMob Plus platform has an intelligent database using analytics to gather consumer usage data. This opens up the possibility of using data mining in order to develop new revenue streams.
The YooMob Plus platform’s intelligent interfacing allows for rapid deployment of new sites. Average deployment time will be reduced from three months to around one month. SyQic is currently carrying out a process to upgrade all of its existing telco sites to the new YooMob Plus platform over the coming months and, going forward, all new telco sites will be launched with the YooMob Plus platform.
